Wow Nike made 18.1 billion in 2010 alone. I wonder how much of that is attributed to the reemergence of the Air foamposite one and Air foamposite pro? And nike is going up on the prices of ones and pros from $200 to $225. Also does anyone know if the total air foamposite max white is re-releasing in 2012?
at the end of the day this is what its all about.....$$$$$$$.....nike could give a f**k less about quality or the people! I read in a article nike is trying to be 30bil company in the next couple yrs....know what that means.....even more PRICE HIKES!!!!!!!!
